WIAW #41

Good morning y’all! Wow it is hard to believe that it is April today. I have been busy the past week looking for a new job. My current contract is up next month and I need to figure out where I want to go for the next 3 months. I have applied to some jobs back in Arizona but am thinking possibly Colorado or Washington. I had hoped to have a license to work in California be approved but it seems to be taking a long time and won’t be ready yet. Any suggestions for me?!? Time for another weekly look at another day of food thanks to Jenn and the weekly WIAW series.

I have thought about switching up my breakfast but am honestly enjoying the how good Kodiak Cakes taste and how easy they are to whip up each morning. I went to a different farmer’s market this past weekend and they had no fresh berries so a juicy gala apple has returned.
IMG_1980After a busy morning I made it home around lunch and was starving. I had a mix of quick snack like items. I had a star reward that was expiring so last week I picked up this new to me green juice from Starbucks. Definitely not sure it was worth the $6 regular price but free was ok.
IMG_2114I also had Nuttzo on some rice cakes
IMG_2096And a red Gala apple that was so juicy and sweet. It tasted like a fresh summer apple. Excellent!
IMG_2113I spent the afternoon looking for some new workout capris. I am having a hard time finding a pair that are long enough and don’t ride down. I have a pair of Fabletics which are ok but I need more than one pair. I did go to Lululemon for the first time and tried a few pairs on. I just couldn’t bring myself to pay the $90….is lululemon worth it? Any tall girl suggestions? While I was out I picked up another pack of locally brewed beer that was great. I sipped on a cold one while preparing supper
IMG_2111I had saw these organic sweet potatoes at the farmer’s market and thought it would be great for supper. I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do with it though. I have made ‘fries’ in the oven before but they just seem to go mushy and not crispy. I decided to bake this spud and use it as a taco like vessel. I defrosted some ground buffalo and topped it with bell pepper, cucumber, salsa, and guac. It was AMAZING! I will totally be making this again soon!
IMG_2107Added a salad on the side with some chopped daikon that I also picked up at the market.
IMG_2108Ended the day snacking on some frozen cherries and strawberries
IMG_2112Hope you all have a great first week of April and enjoy some wonderful spring food!

Are you a sweet potato fan?

Any suggestions on where in the country I should get a new job at? 🙂

  1. Lulu can seam expensive but they really are worth it. The quality is fantastic and they last forever!


  2. Great eats! I love your glass {the one your beer was in}. I love sweet potatoes…if they’re roasted and add cinnamon…or some honey, cinnamon, and allspice…they’re really good!

    Come to Charleston, SC! I’m sure we have plenty of openings for RNs. You’d love it here! 🙂


    • Thanks Mary! Charleston has been on my bucket list for a place to go. There are a few rural jobs in NC right now but non in SC. I am looking though. Hopefully one day I can check out the area 🙂
